Creative Minds at Work

Skip sez: I figured it was time to add another post to our long-neglected blog, and since my partner D.M.L. is busy re-writing the script for our upcoming graphic novel, I thought I'd give a few (very few, based on the weekly site reports I keep getting every Sunday) of our gentle readers a peek behind the scenes, as it were, to the "inner workings" of Simpson/Lynch Studios, where along the way I plan on divulging a few of our "trade secrets." Heh heh heh.

David sez: Oh, terrific. Here's where I get to do "damage control!"

Skip sez: First of all, David comes up with a story. Then he emails it to me, where I do the art.

David sez: Luckily, I save all of my original art, so I can someday sell it for big bucks on eBay!

David sez: I think mine was almost as good as Skip's...

Skip sez: That concludes our tour through the inner workings of Simpson/Lynch Studios. Please be sure to grab a complimentary copy of Dewey Mellen's Pleasantview Poop Sheet, and purchase a souvenir t-shirt and a Kewl Beanz! coffee mug, on your way out.

David sez: *sigh*

Skip sez: Vootie!

David sez: Oh, shut up! I mean, thanks for your time, fellow babies!

Poe, Poe, Pitiful Me... or Us... or Something...

The party... That is, the partnership... is not over!

(Silver Fox here, fellow babies.)

Ever since Skip and I torpedoed... I mean, retired... the ongoing Pleasantview storyline (see previous post, and about eight million leading up to it), this blog has been without a breath of fresh air. Or stagnant air, either, for that matter... but I digress.

Although both of us have been tied up with our real -- and separate -- lives (Skip's in Alabama Virginia, and mine in Massachusetts), we haven't given up on our partnership, and we will soon embark on begging submitting our latest joint project to prospective publishers.

Long-time readers of my solo blog, The Lair of the Silver Fox, may remember an Edgar Allan Poe parody I wrote entitled "The Tell-Tale Timex" back in 2009. Well, true to form, Skip horned in on was inspired by it, and we re-worked the narration slightly to render it in comic book graphic literature format.

Here's page one:

And if you're having trouble reading the narrative captions, here they are, reprinted from the original post on my "Foxyblog":

Insane? Me? Is that what they're saying?

That I'm crazy, mad, wacky, zany, pixilated, Looney Tunes, unhinged, demented, full-goose-bozo, cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, and otherwise missing a few flights of stairs to the attic?

No. Certainly not.

Not me.

Anyway, fellow babies, that's just a teaser, meaning that the above is all you get. For free, anyway. Heh.

When -- not "if and when" -- it gets sold and published, we'll let you know.

Thanks for your time.
